Back and fully dressed, a fake stripper troupe in purple bow ties with a great sense of humour returns to Chilliwack.
The Comic Strippers are back at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Feb. 12 with a show full of hilarious improv and gut-busting comedy.
The Comic Strippers – Fully Clothed! is a stripped down three-person version of the show. Members from the cast – Roman Danylo, Denise Jones and Chris Casillan — shed their characters, keep their shirts on, and the laughs going.
Fitting into a more intimate setting, The Comic Strippers – Fully Clothed! gives you a chance to meet the real comedians underneath the bow ties and their unsexy stripper personas.
Roman Danylo has appeared on CTV’s Comedy Now, Comedy Inc. and Corner Gas; CBC’s Just For Laughs, The Debaters, and Winnipeg and Halifax Comedy Festivals.
Denise Jones has been a staple to the Vancouver improv scene for over 20 years. She is a Leo-nominated actor and can be seen in lots of talking dog movies.
Chris Casillan is a longtime Vancouver-based actor, improviser, comedian and musician and two-time Canadian Comedy Award winner.
“We are so excited to be getting back on stage for live performances. Touring and doing shows with your comedy friends, especially in nice theatres, is about as good as showbiz gets,” Danylo said. “The Chilliwack Cultural Centre has been so good to us over the past 10 years. We must have done seven or eight different shows there by now. The Comic Strippers – Fully Clothed! is a new fun show for us because we get to dive back into some of our favourite comedy forms… stand-up, improv, and music.”
The Comic Strippers’ ability to create a hilarious unscripted show every time is second only to their over-the-top outrageousness – and as Danylo goes on to reveal, their unmatched improv-impulses mean that every show is uniquely exciting and entertaining.
“As a performer, it’s pretty tough to beat improv. There’s nothing more exciting and freeing than making it up in the moment – and it also means there’s less preparing to do. Less work equals more fun! It’s just an explosion of ridiculousness every time.”
The Comic Strippers – Fully Clothed! is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Feb. 12, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults, $32 for seniors and $30 for youth, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
